This work proposes and realizes transverse photon spin (T-spin) in a bulk medium, without relying on the presence of any interfaces. It shows the mapping of the T-spin of surface modes to that of the bulk modes by introducing bianisotropy into the medium. The researchers further discover that the interface between two bianisotropic media of opposite orientations supports edge-dependent propagating modes with tunable cutoff frequencies. Their results provide a new platform for manipulating the spin–orbit interaction of electromagnetic waves.
